There is a FN + Key (F9 for me) Hotkey to disable the elan touchpad on ASUS Laptops.
This might be the problem if someone activated it by accident.
Also the correct drivers might be missing.

    Don't forget to check BIOS setting "Internal pointing device" - "Enabled" or so.

I had issue with my Elan touchpad and my solution after a bunch of head ache was to shut down computer, unplug, and pull the battery out. After doing so I touched the touchpad while computer is off and the power button. Then put battery back in and started up and it was solved... Magic! It worked for my problem (Touchpad was not even showing up in device manager computer didn't think it had one, it wouldn't even work when I booted into Linux) There must of been some really weird charge on the capacitor so this allowed it to discharge. Think of it as hitting the reset button.
And of course make sure your touchpad is enabled in the bios and the touchpad off button is not set. Also check touchpad settings in your mouse settings section to.

When I plug in an external mouse, it won't click.


If an external mouse does not work correctly, you may need to install device drivers for it. Windows does not support all 'mice' just by plugging them in. Download and install the drivers for the mouse from the manufacturers web site. Do NOT do a factory recovery for a device driver problem.

My compaq presario v2000 built in mouse is not moving while the external mouse is working what do I do to fix this problem


alright, so you're saying that the touchpad ceases to function when you have the external plugged in? that is probably normal behavior set in the mouse settings in control panel, if you're saying it's not working at all there should be a button to the right of the touchpad that is used to enable and disable that device.

Every time I boot my EEE PC the touchopad is disabled. I plug in a USB mouse, enable the Elan smartpad through the properties of the Elan smartpad and it works ok until I reboot again. How do I enable it...


Usually there is a FN key that will enable the touchpad. I have EEPC and mine is the little blue FN key (usually next to the CTRL and Windows Key) + one of the number keys. Look for a little blue symbol that looks like your touchpad.

As for it being disabled every time you start, I find that very weird. Sometimes installing a wireless mouse, installs software that tells the system to disable the touchpad, so that the 2 don't conflict when using the mouse.

And of course make sure your touchpad is enabled in the bios or with the touchpad on/off button either on your keyboard F-Keys or a button next to the touchpad (that the touchpad off button is not set). Also check touchpad settings in your mouse settings section to.

Asus 10065ha xp both touchpad and external mouse not working touchpad went first. then worked with external mouse. then only touchpad. now both not working.


Unplug your external mouse and restart your laptop. Check to see if the touchpad works, if it doesn't reinstall the driver. Unplug all other USB devices and plug your mouse back into a different USB port. It should be detected now. Cheers, Ravi Shanghavi

My touchpad has stopped working and the only way i can properly use it, is by plugging in a computer mouse. The touchpad allows me to move the mouse arrow icon all over the screen, but when trying to...


You can turn on "tapping" and will be able to tap instead of click. It seems like hardware problem. Take the computer apart and check the flat cable from the touchpad to the motherboard. Check with a mutltimeter whether the buttons are making contact on click.

Can move the mouse but not clikc with the touchpad


Hi,

if you installed an external mouse, it would over-ride the touchpad.
try removing the external mouse, and tap the touchpad twice as if you were double clicking it.
also you could try re-installing the touchpad device driver, usually synoptics or similar.
